• Our Mission Statement:

    To provide a rigorous Montessori education, guiding children toward academic excellence, lifelong learning, and stewardship of the greater community.


    ECMCS History:

    In 2003, East Cooper Montessori Charter School opened its doors with 44 students in first through third grades in one 1,200 square foot rental trailer. In 2007, we had grown to serve 259 students in grades first through eighth in a 14,000 square foot building. In order to support the demand for top notch Montessori education, we moved to our new 20,000 square foot home serving over 400 students ages 3 to eighth grade.

    Progress has not always been easy, but the school’s leadership has persevered with unshakeable determination, encouraged by parents and community members who continue to support the vision and mission of ECMCS. We have made Adequate Yearly Progress every year since our inception, as well as received the distinction of being awarded the Palmetto Gold and Silver Awards. We continue to see the demand for our school in a long waiting list.
